Smile BEST betta fish food? :P

If this has already been posted please link me to it and i'll see if I can delete this thread or something ^^; I have looked thru tutorials maybe I missed it, who knows o.o

Anyway, what is the BEST betta fish food?

I heard all kinds of rumors like: freeze dried leads to constipation, live food leads to disease/bacteria and lots of other things. Veggies lead to other problems as well. Perhaps all food has their own problems?

Of course bloodworms are a snack...

So- what's the best healthiest diet? I should look into betta fish breeder forums and find out what they use :) heheh

I know New Life Spectrum Betta Formula and Omega One Betta Buffet Bites are good. I fed my betta (when I had him) Omega One.

New Life Spectrum Betta Formula pellets as the staple. Switch out the pellets a few days a week with a frozen/thawed food like Bloodworms, Brime Shrimp, etc. Have one day a week dedicated to fasting, where your Betta doesn't eat anything. This is recommended as a constipation prevention.

Avoid flakes and freeze dried. If you ever offer live food make sure it comes from a reputable fish store.

New Life Spectrum didn't become available in my area until very recently. I use Omega One Betta Buffet pellets and both of my guys took to it very quickly.

I prefer Atison Pro which has been discontinued but I hear it's still available through the IBC. I use it along with HBH Betta Bites, Wardleys Betta Food, Wardleys Betta Essential, and with my less picky ones Betta Min. I vary the diet quite a bit. I also use these pellets with BBS and frozen blood worms.

I use NLS betta pellets almost exclusively and occasionally supplement with frozen brine shrimp, frozen bloodworms and live blackworms.

NLS is hands down my favourite brand of fish food. I have my goldfish on it and the change in growth and colour from when they were on generic pellets/flakes is astounding.
